    Category Minseo Shin Saanvi Kumar
    Use of evidence: 3 3
    Delivery skill: 3.7 3.9
    Coherence of arguments: 5.1 5.1
    Responsiveness to opponent: 3.7 4.1
    Identification of key points: 4.2 4.3
    Comments: You do a very good job of responding to your opponent's arguments, but you need to make sure you are also emphasizing your own position. You should talk much more about the impact of vigilantly violence and racial discrimination. You use a good amount of logic and reasoning. You do a good job of pointing out problems and continuing to extend them. You should emphasize the arguments that he doesn't answer, like the UN jurisdiction issue.

    The decision is for the Opposition: Saanvi Kumar

    Reason for Decision:

    Both sides did an excellent job! This was a very engaging debate! In the end, I do not feel that the proposition adequately answered the contention that the UN does not have the jurisdiction for this, and many would either fail to reform or leave. The opposition provided an example (parts of India) to prove how culture would make legal reforms difficult to accept, while the proposition didn't provide any examples to the contrary. In general, it would be helpful if both sides used more researched evidence to support their claims.
